This also gives morale to the DHS professionals holding on by their
fingernails until civil liberties are restored and they don't have to live
in an environment of compromised ethics to maintain their careers while we
outsiders effect reform.
Rather like the diplomatic corps professionals under the Bush
administration who had to just take a siege mentality - about their own
people. PATRIOT has been in place for a decade now - it's a long time to
try to stay sane in an organization where the young turks think this is how
it's always been and is supposed to be. Yet there are professionals in
every three letter agency trying to ve moderating influences...possibly
kicking themselves for feeling a little more optimistic today.
